The North Coast of NSW is home to a culture steeped in rural traditions, with country towns and villages nestled in the lush green hills and valleys formed from ancient volcanoes. With Nimbin to the west and Byron Bay to the east Bangalow is in the centre of the counter culture. The village an historical treasure. The markets on the 4th Sunday of every month are a gathering of locals, a get-together of; artists, artisans, bakers, victuals, therapists, farmers and friends. And from afar visitors are welcomed to join the day.You can hear the languages of people from far off lands, backpackers and celebrities alike make a day of the markets.
The Bangalow Market Day is a treat for day trippers, a retreat from the city and the rush of the Gold Coast. Bangalow is a window into another world. Come for the day.
Part of the continuing success of the market is the beautiful grounds the markets are held in, which are dominated by eleven huge camphor laurel trees which provide welcome shade and rustling leaves and a magic forest atmosphere.
The market is a day out for people, and health and safety regulations prevent pets from also attending so if you are coming to the market you will have to leave your dog at home.
A percentage of the market profit each month is distributed to Bangalow Community Groups on a rotating basis. The market then benefits the whole community and fulfils its role as a community market.
Parking is available in the Showgrounds at the market. Parking fee is $2
Profits from parking fees are used to maintain and improve the Showground. The grounds are managed by a committee of community volunteers
